The graduation program featured music by the Highland Adventist School orchestra and choir, a photo tribute to the members of the class, and speeches by each of the class members, and a a commencement address by H.A.S. high school teacher, Jeremy Jacko, B.A., MDiv. Jacko challenged the students to invest in their future by making good preparation and good choices. Class valedictorian, Joel Grey, and co-salutatorians Madalin Teter and Angela Volpe responded with speeches. In addition, the class arranged for a certificate of appreciation to be presented to Chinese exchange student Hang Yin who has spent the year with the class but is not graduating.
"In addition to their academics, the members of the class have provided leadership at our school through their work in the school's Student Association, participation in the school's music and service programs, and leading the praise and worship team," states Cheryl Jacko, principal. "We have really appreciated their leadership and contribution and will miss each one."
